What you need to know about PCOS and Menopause [Podcast with Dr. Felice Gersh]

“We have to decide that health is a priority and we have to decide this at every stage of life, including Menopause.  It takes work.
We need to be ever vigilant about our choices.” – Dr. Felice Gersh

Dr. Felice Gersh is a double board-certified, ground-breaking thought leader in the field of PCOS. She returns to the PCOS Diva podcast to discuss taking control of your lifestyle before you enter Menopause. 

In general, women with PCOS need to be extra vigilant during the peri-menopause and menopause years because we have more insulin resistance, gut issues, and inflammation. If these issues are left unmanaged, during menopause they can contribute to heightened hot flashes, mood swings, sleep problems, and weight gain.

There is hope! Dr. Gersh assures us that Menopause does not have to be all gloom and doom. She shows us how to take control of our health now so we can breeze through Menopause. 

Listen in and learn:

  • 3 stages of menopause and what to expect if you have PCOS
  • Why PCOS-delayed Menopause is a myth
  • How to take control now – Tips and best practices to start implementing at all stages of life (and before you hit Menopause)
  • Hot flash treatments
  • Why a hysterectomy is not the solution
